New and Novel: Cookbooks with Pictures to Make Your Mouth Water!

Here at abcreads, we know there are a lot of cookbooks out there - ones by celebrity chefs, ones about cooking with special tools or procedures (crockpots, canning, freezing), ones about specific kinds of food or serving up dishes from different cultures.  We find ourselves lately drawn to the cookbooks with the best pictures!  Frankly, we find it hard to concentrate on the recipes in cookbooks these days without a gorgeous, lush photograph next to it - a good photograph can really draw you in!  Here are some newer cookbooks you might enjoy, whether you are looking for some new recipes or just like to look at the pictures, as we do (in fact, the first two cookbooks are by authors who are photographers by trade):

What Katie Ate: Recipes and Other Bits & Pieces by Katie Quinn Davies
